Once Upon a Time in America

Once Upon a Time in America (1984)

Ending / spoiler

Noodles is invited to a party, where he reunites with Max, who didn't die and is under a different identity. Max wants Noodles to shoot him - to repay a favour - but Noodles refuses and walks away. We later see a dark figure coming from the house and disappears when a garbage truck drives past - we don't know if Max jumped in or not.A flashback follows this of Noodles second entry to the Chinese hideout where we first saw him. He smokes some opium and grins - suggesting the entire film was an opium dream but we are left in mystery.
